The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine was distinguished by receiving the European Medal awarded by the Business Centre Club for products and services of European standard.
This award confirms the fact, that visiting the historic Wieliczka mine is an excellent example of Polish entrepreneurship on the international market. The Chairman of the European and Social Committee, Henri Malosse, in his letter to the laureates of the European Medal wrote: So as Europe can effectively compete with other economies we need good and innovative products. […] I congratulate the laureates for their contribution to global economy and especially the economy of Poland.
The European Medals were awarded for the twenty fifth time. The competition was organized with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and under the honorary patronage of the European and Social Committee.
The European Medal is yet another award which the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine received this year apart from the Business Innovation Award, the title of Leader of the Malopolska Brand and MP Power Award (the saline undergrounds are highly recognized as a venue for organizing all kinds of events).
Not only the products, services and activities of the mine are highly appreciated, but also the mine itself, especially when it has been elevated to the position of the symbol of Poland. CNN published a list of “25 things we love about Poland”, commemorating the anniversary of Poland’s free elections held on 4 June, where they also mentioned the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine.
